Transport the Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

quick question:

I need to drive the Ultimaker 2 from city A to city B on a regular basis.

Do I need to secure some parts of the UM 2 with zipties like when it was shipped or something? How do you generally move the UM2 around?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

From my experience i'd say just handle it with care. It's better if you put it back in the package used when delivered, it will be secured that way.

We can assume that you will not bang it around like transporters do so you're pretty safe to transport it like that.

I place mine on a seat which absorbs most of the shocks and cradles it in place. I also remove the filament as the filament and the spool holder makes it unbalanced and more likely to fall over. Especially if a full spool.

Its funny how we usually put the seat belt on things we care about :).

I usually secure it on the rear seat with the belt in lock mode. I used 1 or 2 shoe boxes that I cut in half to secure the corners a little more against impacts.

Like mentioned:

- remove the filament

- filament holder

- remove the sd card if you dont want to lose it by accident.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
